The Buffalo Plateau Circuit is a 2 day, approximately 34km walk, that starts and finishes at Echo Point car park.

Day 1 (19.4km): Starting at Echo Point car park today we will follow a variety of tracks to our overnight camp at Rocky Creek Campsite, located in the far west of the plateau. On the way, we will pass and stop for the great views of nearby peaks, the plateau and the Buffalo River, at The Monolith, Mt Dunn, Og Gog Magog, Eagle Point and Mollisons Galleries.

Please note that the section between Mollison Galleries and Rocky Creek may be overgrown, as it is not often used. There are limited markings and may be dense scrub and blackberries as we attempt to stay on the faint track.

Day 2 (14.4km): Leaving Rocky Creek Campsite we will head towards Wild Dog Plains and Macs Point, with great views over The Great Dividing Range. Following The Long Plain we will cross Split Rocks, the Giants Causeway, Stanley and Drillhole Rocks. After a short distance on the Mt Buffalo Road, we turn onto the Lakeside Walk, which follows the northern side of Lake Catani. Crossing the bridge below the dam wall, the track eventually drops into the Haunted Gorge before climbing up to Billisons Lookout. From here it’s only about 300m back to the cars.

I will pre book the Rocky Creek campsites with Parks Vic, so there will be a small fee for the sites, which will be split between the group.
